A Hawk and a Hacksaw

7:30 p.m. Sunday, September 18. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Taking traditional Balkan/Eastern European music to its hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, A Hawk and a Hacksaw performs gypsy-influenced folk in an effortless reappropriation. With a vaudevillian elegance, the core duo of accordion and violin permeates its listeners souls, resulting in an emotional purging. Cervantine, the band's latest attempt at enchanted communion, is a flawless homage to the archaic nostalgia of world music. The group's dedication to form, style and musical technicality is apparent with each sound that resonates toward a perpetual autumn. The band's performances are often moving as it plays its melancholic melodies into the last sunset on Earth. Recommended Drink: Whiskey. Straight, no chaser.
